3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Pours a dark, ruby red with a nice white head. Tastes incredibly sweet, nice fruits, goes down very easily. Just about no bitterness, making it extremely accessible. Very adequate level of carbonation. This is probably one of the most underrated beers here, as I know I could initiate just about anybody to beer tasting with this one.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Clear dark red pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is mostly absent, some sugary malts. Flavor is sweet sugar and a bit creamy. Boring brew.

Got a 4,7% alcohol version. Dark brown color. Malty and light roasty aromas. Medium sweet taste and light bitterness from the roast.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep reddish brown with a quickly dissipating light tan head. Aroma of grains and roasted malts, ’Sugar Crisp’ cereal comes to mind, leading me to believe this will be overly sweet. Sugary malt profile dominates the flavor, some of the roasted character peeks through on occasion but is surely lacking. Nondescript finish, and the beer is thin and watery on the palate to its detriment. Drinkable, but disappointing.

Pours quite dark brown with a low head. Aroma is roasted malts, well balanced flavor is roasted malts with a hint of caramel. Pretty ordinary dunkel, quite decent.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml green bottle with gold foil.
It pours a brownish reddish cola color with a foamy tan head that leaves no lacing.
The smell is pretty good, it is caramally with some cocoa, not unlike a English Dark Mild. This one however is infused with a little kiss of noble hops that lend a slight fruitiness.
The flavor is surprisingly sweet for the abv. After the initial burst of sweetness it mellows out with a nice bit of bitterness and some dark bread flavors. The sweetness is primarily caramel and cocoa.
It is drinkable to a point, it could be sessionable but it is a bit sweet.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml green bottle purchased at the Centropolise SAQ (Laval, Quebec), last January 2011. Hazelnut brown, little head. Aroma of very caramelized malt little roasted. Malted barley taste of poor quality, a little sweet, aftertaste of bitter vegetables. It’s written on the label that was once the best beer in the world, hard to believe!
